Check out these teachers coming to Calico Mermaid:
quilt designer, teacher & author, will be here Saturday, February 7 to teach Circle Pizzazz.Her goal as a teacher is that each student go away happy, with a unique quilt - not a copy of everybody else's in the workshop. Her books continue to be best sellers.
will be here April 18 from Southern California to
share her passion for quilting with all levels of quilters. She uses a wide variety of techniques with incredible results.
fabric artist & quilt teacher will be here May 16.
She uses fabric and thread as her medium
instead of paper and paint....and a sewing machine instead of a brush.
She grew up in the Netherlands, & has lived & taught around the world. She is now at home in Northern California.
Our sweet new grandbaby & lots of time with his parents made the year a really memorable one.
But now I'm ready to start thinking about this New Year coming up in a few hours.
I don't want it to mow me down like 2014 tried.
So this year I'm planning a little better.
We have some amazing classes coming up at the shop.
It's been wonderful to meet quilt designers & authors who teach all over the world & say, "Sure. I'll come to your little shop in Porterville & teach." They just want to share their love of quilting with everyone! I can hardly wait. Watch your email for details & information soon.
I'm also planning in some time for me.
Last year I learned a lot - stretched myself a lot & accomplished some things I never expected to even attempt.
But the opportunities caught me by surprise & this year I'm going to be ready to grab them!
I find having time to create feels so good!
Whether it's creating with fabric, crafting or in my home, garden, classroom, or shop - it just feels great to make stuff happen.
And I'm going to plan to make stuff happen this new year!
